Bun B, Jean Grae, and Pharoahe Monch discuss battle rap and Red Bull EmSee
October 19, 2011
Right before Red Bull EmSee battle rap royale in Boston a few weeks ago (no joke, we were at the Royale in Boston), our host Bun B and judges Jean Grae and Pharoahe Monch sat down and talked to Brooklyn Bodega and Tha Reelness about the tour, battle rap in general, and what they’re looking for when the battles happen. Red Bull EmSee is still ongoing, we have five finalists for the big Atlanta finale, with regionals in DC on October 24, Detroit on October 28, and Miami on November 16 to find the last three finalists in the field.
As a bonus, Tha Reelness put together more stuff from their interview with Bun B and touched on his lecture role at Rice University, future collaborations with other artists, what else he has planned in the future, and why hip-hop is great.
